I am a diabetic with a number of health issues including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I want to fit into smaller clothes. There is this dress that I want to wear, but wearing it right now would make me self-coscious.
Today, I am looking at everything I have been eating and drinking and I have noticed a pattern. The less water I drink, the unhealthier my diet tends to be. I don't know why that is, but I admit that my diet is in need of improvement. I have been drinking more water and eating less food, but I have struggled as of late because I wasn't sure how many calories I was supposed to eat.
My calorie budget is 2000 calories which would be reasonable. I don't have to eat 2000 calories per day, which would equal very slow weight loss. This was the cause of my frustration. I tend to eat between 1500-2000 per day.
I feel good about my eating today. However, eating a whole can of soup may not the be healthiest thing I ever did. Drinking green tea, on the other hand, is.
This blog is a food and diet blog which is also about my opinions about food and dieting. My mindset was very negative and now I have hope. I may always have struggles, but at least I know what to do. I am now motivated than ever to continue on my weight loss journey.
